or paris or korea, and you start pointing out that no, we're not as good, it will create a sense of maybe shaking the complacency, which i think is the first step. there is a complacency here that people -- opinion leaders and people that have more disproportionate influence, don't view their own kids' plight as bad at all. and we need to create some awareness, i think, as john said, through information that this is a serious challenge for our country and it's, you sadly it's changing who we are as a nation and we're losing our competitive edge because of it as well. >> and this project under way, a really good one, and then also the common assessment to bring it right down to the kid level, how your child is doing in relation to these rigorous and we hope world class standards, will certainly give people information. at the same time, however, if you've got a smug suburban constituency and the teachers in those schools are also grumping that the politicians and the policymakers are making their life harder, threatening their jobs, giving them too much to do, narrowing the curriculum. >>

everyone has a shot. parents, you have got to paris. students, you have got to study. but do not tell me that hiring more teachers will not help the country grow. do not tell me that students should just borrow money -- more money from their parents. that was not an option for me, maybe not for a lot of you. that is why the change i want to bring is to cut tuition and have, make college more affordable. i want 100,000 new math and science teachers. i want to train 2 million americans at community colleges for the jobs people are hiring for right now. that is my plan. that is the america we are fighting for.

and paris h ilton to do a little bit more. it is common sense. many of them are literally saying, taxing more. they believe they have more to give. everybody in their situation needs to be asked to do a little bit more and the country would be better off. did lloyd blankfein say that the other day? the reality of the situation is shifting. i cannot think of a better situation than that. he is somebody you, in theory, understands economics. host: from the news conference, the president on the debt and entitlement reform.
